Only 20% of positions in research group directions are occupied by women. On the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2017, the Young Researchers of the Iberian Association of Limnology are committed to promote and support every action for addressing gender inequality and bias in science. We believe that this bias is due to organisational and unconscious culture. It is for these reasons that we would like to share with all a serie of actions and documents carried out by different women scientists from research centers and associations in Spain who aims to show and add value to their present-day investigations:
  • Video of women researchers from the CSIC
  • Press release and radio Interview of women researchers from the Federation of Young Researchers (in Spanish)
  • Form to support women´s daily work in science (it only takes 3 minutes to fill it!)
Women have been always present in the scientific world and we want everybody to know about them. Our lives would not be as they are today without the accomplishments of all those great women, It is important that we speak about them, we learn about them and we teach about what they discovered or invented. It is important for all women, but it is specially important that girls have role models, strong women to look at and to be inspired by them. To find out more, just follow this link.

For an non-biased science and equal opportunities for everyone!
